2017 (1867-) Canadian 1-Cent Big Coin Series Alex Colville Designs: Rock Dove 5-ounce Fine Silver & Gold-plated Penny Coin


Beloved for their historic relevance and elegance, the 1967 Canadian Centennial circulation coins recall a momentous anniversary and are cherished for starting many collectors on their collecting journey! Fifty years later, these iconic coin designs make their return once more in this stunning Big Coin series, ending with the most famous: the one-cent coin designed by Alex Colville.

A gorgeous gift for someone who enjoys Alex Colville's 1967 centennial circulation coins! 



SIXTH AND FINAL COIN IN SERIES! Your coin is the sixth and final in an unforgettable series that celebrates Canada's 150th anniversary and the 50th anniversary of the 1967 Canadian Centennial circulation coins.
BOTH SIDES OF YOUR COIN FEATURE SELECTIVE GOLD PLATING! Never before have these iconic designs been featured in 99.99% pure silver—and on a much larger scale (65.25-mm diameter)—uniquely enhanced with stunning gold plating selectively applied to the reverse and obverse.
GORGEOUS PROOF FINISH! The proof finish is gorgeously enhanced with modern polishing techniques that highlight the meticulous engraving of each subject.
INCLUDES EFFIGY OF HER MAJESTY QUEEN ELIZABETH II. For added historical authenticity, the obverse features the second effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, as it appeared on the original coins.
THIRD BIG COIN SERIES TO FEATURE ICONIC CANADIAN CIRCULATION COINS! Previous ones sold out very quickly; given the popularity of the original designs, and a low mintage, this series will be highly sought after.
LARGE SIZE COIN! Your coin is 65.25-mm in diameter, an impressive size that highlights the beautiful design.
5 OUNCE 99.99% PURE SILVER COIN! Your coin is GST/HST exempt!
LOW MINTAGE: Only 2,150 coins will be made worldwide.



Your coin re-creates the classic 1967 one-cent circulation coin design by Canadian artist Alex Colville, and features a full front profile of a rock dove in flight on outstretched wings. Meticulously engraved, this recreation of the original design allows for a more detailed view of some of the finer details such as its tail and wing feathers. The image is enhanced by the application of selective gold plating over the bird and all along the coin's rim. The reverse also features the engraved face value "1 CENT", the word "CANADA" and the commemorative dates "1867-2017".
